Do your young kids have electronics?

Someone gave my 3 year old an original Kindle for his books because he saw how much he was using mine at baseball games and thought he deserved his own.   He had one, but never registered it, so now my 3 year old has his own Kindle for his books.



Never thought I would have a child his age with something electronic

My son is 4 and has his own iPad. It's full of educational apps and Angry Birds. He loves it.

My 7 yr old has a leapster explorer, and uses hubby's DS, but playes the word search and crossword game only on it. He would love an iPad, or his own computer, or cell phone, and about the only thing he might get is my mom's old laptop. Well to be honest he is almost 8, and he likes to research dinosaurs and play on approved sites (like nickjr.com).

My 2 year old has a Kindle Fire. DH bought it for the 2 year old and the 6 year old to share so they would leave his Ipad alone. My 2 year old claimed it for his own and my 6 year old took my Nook Color when I got the Nook Tablet for Christmas.

ETA: The 2 year old uses the Kindle to watch Youtube videos of excavtors, lawnmowers, and weedwackers. He also figured out how to buy movies from Amazon. DH was not happy about that.

My 3 and 5 year old have leapsters and their own computers. DH is talking about getting them some sort of tablet or a kindle to use.

Yes and no.  He has his own "My Laptop" which is a toddler laptop that just has the alphabet, shapes and numbers keys, and he has a handheld alphabet thing.  He's 2.  He has used them maybe a handful of times between the two of them.  You can't stop the kid from running long enough to play anything on it!
